of knowing people when they are not running. >> in your lifetime, 17 years with capital gang, cnn, 17 years. >> robert novak, migrate colleague and wonderful friend, it was his idea, the show. he was unhappy -- he as the executive producer made two mistakes. one, as far as capital gang was concerned, he agreed to go to one hour. cnn had this very popular show at 7:00 on saturday night -- a great half-hour show. he had a brilliant idea -- bring on a newsmaker, accused of being too cozy or whatever, but bring on a senator, a governor, a cabinet member, and make them part of the discussion. you would say, what do you think of this? be on a first name basis. you really get a sense of these people. some could take it, others would not. they were used to being deferred to. but it was not a one-hour show. when you do a one-hour show you have to go to hamburger helper and expand out -- let's do a longer piece. it was a high energy show for half an hour. cnn was going through all kinds of changes, too. they have nothing to compare with c-span and you, but -- >> we are 50 minutes in and have not gott
